parents and students,
Welcome back to the Dojo! And to new students, parents, and families... Welcome!
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or need clarification about anything pertaining to Aikido and our dojo.
It's so good to be back in the dojo, and into the new academic year. This year, we have a new class for beginners on Tuesdays at 4pm. The Tuesday 5pm class is now geared toward the intermediate level.
Just a reminder that if there is a long weekend coming up with a holiday on a Monday, the recreation centre does not schedule the Saturday classes for that weekend. So if you have signed up for the full year programme, be rest assured that all classes have already been accounted for in the fee.
Speaking of which, this weekend, Friday 16 and Saturday 17, there are no classes scheduled as Gordon Head Recreation Centre will be hosting the Moon Festival. Known as the "Moon Cake Festival" in South East Asia, if you want something to do this Saturday 17 September, go down to the recreation centre to build lanterns, have some moon festival food.... and just enjoy a Saturday evening with other youngsters and their lit lanterns.
Information for the Autumn classes are already up on our website under "Notices". Please remember to register ahead as under Saanich policy, students who are not registered are not allowed to attend classes due to insurance liabilities. Perhaps consider signing up for the year-long programme.
Please visit our website (or FaceBook pages) and check our Notices for information and updates. To
keep our database current, please inform us if you have a change
of address, new email, or new contact numbers. If you have
any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
For your convenience, here is a calendar you can print and put up on the fridge.
Here's to a most excellent, enriching, and meaningful year of practice!
See you in the Dojo!
With peace and harmony,
Rafael Oei Sensei
